The quality of air inside today’s homes is often worse than the air lingering outside. Viruses, bacteria, allergens, dust motes, gasses and other contaminants circulate inside, creating breathing hazards and bad odors. Homes with the best insulation, unfortunately, tend to trap odors, pollen and other contaminants within their airtight walls due to a lack of airflow most commonly found in older homes.
Indoor air pollution is among the five top environmental health risks, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Installing a whole-home cooling and heating room system is a good way to ensure better, fresher air.
A whole-home room system provided by Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division offers several air cleaning solutions, including:
These systems run air through a multi-stage allergen filtration system, which removes contaminants and odors before pumping the air back into the room. A blue-enzyme, anti-allergen filter reduces bacteria, germs and viruses. It also traps dust, pollens, mites and other particles that make life miserable for allergy sufferers.
Available on select systems, Platinum Deodorizing filters use nanotechnology to absorb odors. A nanometer-sized deodorizing filter traps airborne odor-bearing particles. Once the particles are caught, a plasma electrode generates ozone to decompose them. These filters eradicate the worst smells.
Mitsubishi Electric has developed an advanced filter using catechin, a bioflavanoid that deodorizes!
The Mitsubishi Electric filtration is sophisticated and easy to maintain. If cleaned regularly, the hybrid catechin filters can last up to 10 years. Homeowners can now clean filters in a matter of minutes. Just open the indoor unit’s filter access, remove the screens, wash the filters in the sink and allow them to dry thoroughly before sliding them back in. This is not only cost-effective, but helps the environment by keeping filters from being frequently thrown away.
From dust and pollen to microscopic viruses, there are literally millions of small reasons that air filtration is the better way to healthier air.
